Voices in the wilderness

I shouldn't have gotten a TV, shouldn't subscribe to a newspaper, shouldn't even surf most Intenet sites, because their reporting and analysis of the state of the world is so pitiful, infantile and short-sighted.

Take Bush's recent capitulation to Sharon's insidious plan to give up the Gaza Strip in consideration of keeping settlements on the West Bank and denying to the Palestinians the "right of return" to their homes within Israel. Bush's decision has not simply infuriated the Arab/Muslim world, but with one stroke has not only made the prospect of any resolution of the Israel/Palestine conflict impossible and has caused eternal perpetuation of conflict in the Middle East.
Question: Who benefits from such conflict? Certainly not the populace of the Middle East. Answer: Sharon, of course. Second answer: Bush. The War President.
